The time had come to take out the Mouse Box. Believe it or not I have a mouse box of pastels. It is extremely only a plate loaded with my additional unbiased or turned gray down pastels. I call them the Mousey hues since they are the delicate and dull hues that we tend to overlook....the drab calm hues. We cherish the unadulterated, brilliant serious hues. They get our consideration however they require the adjust of the tranquil neutrals. The winter scene is loaded with these inconspicuous and excellent drab neutrals or grays. They proved to be useful for the present painting.

I utilized a dark blue conditioned board to keep the whole painting impartial however consider conditioning the surface with an all the more exuberant or extreme shading. It will give some intrigue when it looks through the neutrals.
